Results: Geodashing Game 203 (GDDZ)

"Foiled again! This is the third time where I've tried to reach a dashpoint in
the Black Hills. Today I should have looked at a 3D map as the dashpoint
required overland hiking in rough and incredibly steep hillside. I thought it
would be easier once I climbed out of the road cut (grabbing roots and trees)
but it was impossibly steep. Fortunately it was a beautiful drive so getting
ALMOST there was all the fun. Maybe next vacation."

That's Geodashing in South Dakota with Douq Millar


Game 203 (GDDZ) of Geodashing was won by Llama League (55 points), for their
second win in a row. Honorable mention goes to GeoTerriers (16 points).

Individual honors go to deodasher and Douq Millar (24 points each). Honorable
mention goes to RogBarn (12 points).

The game saw 41 dashpoint hunts in seven countries (US, Australia, Czechia,
Canada, Croatia, Hungary and Sweden).


A sampling of waypoints visited by Geodashing players this month:

in the cold waters off Burlington Beach, one of the nicest swimming beaches on
Lake Ontario, probably reachable by wading, probably just up to the knees

on the other side of a barbed wire fence in the wide open grasslands of South
Dakota ("This area sings the song of the meadowlark. A gentle breeze makes the
grasses dance. It is a vast and solitary area.")

in the Czech Republic, 20 m from Grasel trail and near a stone grouping called
Elf rocks, practically on top of one of the two stones

in beautiful green rolling hills and exposed sandstone cliffs typical of the
Yellowstone River valley in Montana, scored within sight of a cowboy
("literally, horse and everything, working his cattle")

out of reach on Dos Pueblos Ranch land in California, but worth a drive
because the coastline west of Santa Barbara is the longest stretch of
undeveloped coast in Southern California

at the entrance to a steep gravel driveway in a green, leafy, hilly area,
perhaps fire-prone in summer, northeast of Melbourne, with a lot of houses
under construction

in Hungary ("in running distance, with a 15,5k total course"), up a slope from
a dirt road, near the motorway which is very loud at this place

in the yard of a house in Kensington, Maryland, near a parked pickup truck and
a dogwood tree in bloom

near a shrubby bush on the north side of I-40 between the main road and the
entrance ramp of the interchange for Midtown, Tennessee

in the front yard of a house in an area of 1970s one story ranch houses with
no garage

east of Sun Prairie east of Madison, Wisconsin, with a field ready for
planting on one side of the road and a barn with dairy cows on the other and
dandelions growing on the shoulder of the road

in Iowa, in a rough pasture, with a bee box along the fence and across from a
pig farm complex, surrounded by corn or beans to feed the pigs

in a green pasture in Missouri surrounded by an electrified fence and signs
warning that closed circuit television was in use

on a road in rural Croatia, near an old scrap metal marketing company and a
new green Quonset hut

in the intersection of I-94 and County Highway 75 outside St. Cloud, Minnesota

in South Dakota, in a plowed field right next to what looks to be a dump, with
huge logs, boulders, stones, a discarded boat and trailer, but with masses of
lilacs blooming along the highway

in a soaking farmers paddock and a bit of natural bushland west of Geelong,
Victoria, Australia, scored "on a cold, wet and miserable day"

on the road south of Adelaide, near a local selling eggs for AU$5/dozen

down the dead end driveway marked Quapaw Lane in a part of Montana popular
with survivalists who don't like strangers

on a dead end road in sparse woods in Idaho, after a great drive around these
beautiful lakes surrounded by mountains

near the nice little fountain at the center of the Las Palmas townhome complex
in Sunnyvale, California

out in tall grass and sagebrush just outside the small airport at Hermiston in
northeastern Oregon

and on the property of Grate Signs in Joliet, Illinois, north of Rock Rurn
Forest Preserve, north of Joliet Junior College, the school Markwell's son
will be attending this fall


Thanks to all the Geodashing players, whose many great reports are
quoted here, not always with proper attribution. Complete, original
reports are available on the Web site.


About Geodashing: Geodashing is a game in which players use GPS
receivers on a playing field that covers the entire planet. The
waypoints, or dashpoints, to be reached are randomly selected. The win
goes to who can get to the most dashpoints; that is, if you can get to
them at all! Each game has a new set of dashpoints making each game
different and unpredictable. For more information and to play, visit .
